  • Sure: CNN’s Baldwin Says It’s ‘Dangerous’ to Wonder If Town Hall Protesters Are Organized

    The double standard continues, folks. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin seemed dismayed and testy when it came to questioning whether or not the attendees at solid congressional Republican town halls are liberal protesters, bemoaning the idea as “dangerous” rhetoric to be articulating.  Of course, NewsBusters readers will find this story to be quite humorous after recalling how this same network dismissed conservatives at town halls in 2009 and 2010 as astroturf or paid brown shirts. (video at link) After Baldwin applauded ABC’s Jonathan Karl for asking White House press secretary Sean Spicer about the town halls, she...

    There was a great commotion in central London last night. A police helicopter hovered over The Spectator‘s office making a din, police sirens sounded and thudding music rattled the windows. I found out why when I left the office and walked via Parliament Square to Whitehall.There was an anti-Trump protest outside Parliament – #stoptrump was the theme – coinciding with the (non-binding and pointless) debate inside Westminster Hall, about President Trump’s state visit to the UK later this year. The protest was a very slick affair. There was a massive TV screen broadcasting anti-Trump videos, and speeches blared out over a speaker...

    O'Keefe said in a telephone interview with CNN on Wednesday that he has "a few hundred hours" of "secretly recorded material" from inside the network. "We're calling it CNN Leaks," he said, drawing inspiration from WikiLeaks' document dumps. He said "part one" would be published Thursday at about 10 a.m. ET. "This is all legally recorded information," he said, declining to be more specific. O'Keefe, who uses undercover stings to trap his targets, has a reputation for shady tactics and exaggerated statements. Some of his so-called exposés have relied on misleading editing techniques. And an incident in 2010 landed him...

    President Trump, in his extraordinary press conference last week, called out the media for its brazenly biased reporting. In the 77-minute presser, he dissected their stories, called out the incessant tone of “anger” and “hatred” and clearly enunciated his view that the Trump White House is running just fine, no thanks to them. And the new alpha wolf in town smacked the lapdog media repeatedly on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper. “Well, the failing New York Times wrote a big, long front-page story yesterday. And it was very much discredited, as you know. It was — it’s a joke,”...

While discussing President Trump's entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media. "And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think," Brzezinski said. "And that, that is our job." SCARBOROUGH: "Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I...

    West Palm Beach (CNN)President Donald Trump has made visiting his Florida golf courses a near every-weekend habit in the first month of his administration, and his aides are trying to obscure whether Trump is actually golfing during the visits.One possible reason: Trump was a frequent and vocal critic of President Barack Obama's golf habit, regularly slamming the former president for playing golf with many pressing issues before the country. Trump even suggested during a 2016 event in Virginia, in a knock on Obama, that if elected he was "not going to have time to go play golf."

After all, Yiannopoulos has spewed so much toxic garbage that he was permanently banned by Twitter in 2016, which says a lot, considering the cesspool that swirls on that platform. So when Maher faced Yiannopoulos on Friday, did the HBO host press him on his view that college rape culture is a fiction and that women are often lying when they report being raped? Did Maher ask him...

"But that one comment, they don't trust you anymore, is a summation of where we are in America, because I really do think Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country," Hewitt said.

President Trump renewed his assault on the veracity of the “fake media” by jousting with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta at a Thursday press conference. During the back and forth, Trump joked that he was downgrading CNN from merely “fake news,” to “very fake news.” He also poked at the network over its ratings. Only five months ago, CNN’s ratings were so bad that it...

    This is getting a bit out of hand: Chuck Todd fears that President Trump is “delegitimizing” the media while carrying water for the latest Democratic Party conspiracy proffered in order to delegitimize the President. Behold the fully-hatched Great Russian Conspiracy: The so-called scandal involving former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn is 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Iran-Contra, Watergate, proof of presidential fascism, a cynical money-making scheme, and a pro-Russian spy thriller all rolled into one, according to the increasingly deranged rants of howling left-wingers and their truth-adverse confederates in the mainstream media. – Frontpage As you may have expected Trump, being Trump, pushed...

    A defamation suit is allowed to survive in a defeat not only for the cable news network, but also for the MPAA. Donald Trump probably doesn't know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn't be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets. There's a reason why the Motion Picture Association of America...
  • Are We Witnessing the Democratic Party transforming into the Whig Party?

    Have the Democrats turned working class middle America against them just like the Whig Party? I know many Trump supporters who are quietly going about their day-to-day business, working 40 - 50 hours a week, paying bills and trying to keep afloat and move their lives forward. However, they are keenly aware of what is happening on the left. The violent (paid) protest, the stupid pussy hats, the suppression of free speech, and the all around anarchy that has happened in places like Berkeley, CA has not gone unnoticed. These Trump voters would like nothing better than to send the...

    Following a truly remarkable press conference by President Donald Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper weighed in on what we had all witnessed. And he didn’t pull any punches. “Everybody at home needs to ask themselves how would you react if that were your boss coming in and giving a speech to the employees,” Tapper noted. “How would you react if that was somebody in your family that you were trying to have a conversation with? You would think this is very difficult to assess in a positive way.” He continued, “The person is not dealing with the world in which we...

    New Day Thursday, host Chris Cuomo attacked Republican Ohio Representative Jim Jordan over his party's handling of leaked allegations of communications between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian officials, which led to Flynn's resignation on Monday. In an interview with the leader of the House Freedom Caucus, Cuomo said that Jordan and his party only want to focus on the source of the leaks instead of the substance of the calls between Flynn and the Russians. "We do not know that Michael Flynn was wiretapped, but it keeps being said by people that want these investigations into the leaks and it deserves to be called out," Cuomo said. CNN's Cuomo...

    Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference. Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    Batten down the hatches, folks. On Wednesday after the press conference between President Trump and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, pure and utter panic set in on CNN as Inside Politics host John King and White House correspondent Jim Acosta bemoaned that “the fix is in” because “it would be nice if the conservative outlets the President is calling on would ask him tough questions.” After Trump and Netanyahu left their podiums, King attacked questioners David Brody from the Christian Broadcasting Network and Katie Pavlich from Townhall with a dose of sarcasm. He then went serious as they didn’t ask Trump about Mike Flynn the...
